Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef
The ABSF is a member of the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (GRSB), which envisions a world where beef is a trusted part of a thriving food system in which the beef value chain is environmentally sound, socially responsible, and economically viable.
The GRSB mission is to advance, support, and communicate continuous improvement in sustainability of the global beef value chain through leadership, science, and multi-stakeholder engagement and collaboration. The ABSF provides resources and expert advice to the GRSB. The GRSB brings together national roundtables (such as the ABSF), member companies, corporations, associations, non-profits and private individuals from 24 countries across five continents. Meat & Livestock Australia and Cattle Australia are also members of the GRSB, as well as a suite of other Australian organisations.
In 2021, the GRSB released three global goals to be reached by 2030 which Australia has aligned with:
- ANIMAL HEALTH AND WELFARE: provide cattle with an environment in which they can thrive through best practices
- CLIMATE: reduce the net global warming impact of beef by 30%
- NATURE POSITIVE: ensure the beef value chain is a net positive contributor to nature.
